5 Truths We Need for Church Revival

Gospel urgency requires Gospel fluency. In other words, if the people in your church are motivated to share the Good News of Jesus but can’t articulate that message in a clear and compelling way then it will not lead to church revival.

5.  Wake up to the potential of youth!

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” 1 Corinthians 1:27

Since there’s nothing more “foolish” than the typical American teenager, we shouldn’t underestimate these young people as a potent agent of revival. God loves to use the unlikely to accomplish the unimaginable because it brings unbelievable glory to him!

Teenagers come to Christ quicker and can spread the Gospel faster and farther than adults. So the quickest way to revive a church is through the youth! That’s why I challenge you to unleash their potential by getting them to make and multiply disciples.

Youth ministry is strategic. Every Great Awakening in the history of the United States has had teenagers on the leading edge.

For more on this check out a radio program I just did with Dr. James Dobson on Family Talk Radio. It’s on the coming youth awakening and Dare 2 Share Live, a student movement coming on September 23 that will unleash up to 50,000 teenagers to share the Gospel from coast to coast and prayerfully and powerfully shake this nation with the Good News of Jesus!

It’s time.

It’s time for church revival!

It’s time to pray to God, purify our hearts and proclaim the Gospel!

It’s time to unleash the next generation to make and multiply disciples until everyone everywhere hears the Good News of Jesus! The Holy Spirit is giving us a wake-up call. Let’s answer it!
